wrapping leash around dog's waist

At class @ Petco today the trainer had two people wrap their leashes around their dogs right in front of the hips to correct pulling. One mellow golden was neutral about it. the other mixed breed fought it violently, biting at the leash and whipping around.

is this a techNiue anyone uses with success?

I've done this and yes it works. If you wrap it right it acts as a harness.

I have. But you better be sure of your dog. The last thing you want is to do it to a strange dog and have them turn on you.

If the dogs hips haven't been checked wouldn't this potentially be quite uncomfortable if it was a dog with bad hips?

No. The leash is tightening around their abdomen. I use a botcher harness for tracking that does the same thing. It feels weird, could cause discomfort. Just if someone put a rope around your belly and tightened it.

I've done this teaching stand/stay. I've never done it to stop pulling though.

There are much better ways to teach the stand

You aren't thinking about doing it, are you CG ?

OK I just watched the Leerburg video about the botcher. Never heard of it. didn't look like what the guy did in class, on those dogs the hip stopped the loop from sliding off, so pressure was on the hips, where the Leerburg video had it right behind the rib cage.

Heavens no I am not going to do this Steve Strom. the real reason I asked was because I was curious if I was judging this guy harshly for doing what he did today. I was not impressed
